I have terrible blood circulation, which means my extremities are always freezing, especially my feet and toes. Hardwood floors in the winter hardly do them any favors. Area rugs — scattered across the house like lily pads in a frog pond — are my saving grace and a must for winter. Here are ten projects to DIY.


  1. This rug from A Beautiful Mess was made by sewing fabric over basic rope.
  2. If you prefer a more nautical or beach-y look, like this one from Better Homes & Gardens, leave off the fabric and just use a two-tone rope.
  3. Using a large cardboard loom, Sara Plath wove various materials together for a relaxed, Bohemian-style rug.
  4. If you know how to crochet, this pattern from Molla Mills is available through Mollie Makes magazine.
  5. El Blog de DMC shares a lacier crochet pattern if you prefer a more vintage look.

  7. Adri of Dreambook Designs shows you how to turn a fabric tablecloth into a circular rug.
  8. Turn your old ragged t-shirts into a braided rag rug like this one Cuada Designs.
  9. You can sew together sections of coiled up twine or natural rope to make a sturdy and organic looking area rug. Nicety shows you how in this tutorial.
  10. A hula hoop becomes a loom in this project from Flax & Twine.
  11. Pom poms can be joined to create a fun and fluffy rug. Via Casa.
